Bangor - Molly ended her dance with lung cancer on September 5, 2019. Molly was born in Paterson, NJ in 1950. Molly was predeceased by her parents Frank J. Pitcher and Grace A. (Thelen).
She grew up in Hawthorne but following high school graduation, moved to Maine where she lived for most of her life. She graduated from the University of Maine (Orono) with a BS in Child Development. She taught school in Caribou for children with physical disabilities for three years and then pursued a career in Orthotics and Prosthetics. She graduated from the University of Washington in 1980 and worked in Bangor. She ran a private practice in Orthotics and Prosthetics for 20 years in Bangor.
Molly considered herself very lucky to have been involved in a variety of musical activities. From singing with a Renaissance Baroque Ensemble when in Aroostook County to the lead singer for the Ridge Road Review who played at the Masardis Cash Store in 1976. Music took a backseat during her study of O&P but she sang for years with the Bagaduce Chorale in Blue Hill. She joined Wild Ginger, a three woman accappella group, in 1995 and enjoyed performing all over Maine for 10 years. She had a love of jazz and standards and loved working with guitar as a duo. She also sang with the Plus Four Jazz Quintet and enjoyed singing and bringing out many delightful tunes. She got to sing these marvelous standards for many audiences and it was a thrill for her every time.
Molly is survived by her beloved husband Dean Harrison of East Boothbay. She is also survived by her brother Michael Pitcher and Judi (McGuire) Pitcher of Ashland, VA and many nephews, nieces and grandnieces and nephews in NJ, greater Bellingham, WA, Seattle WA and Richmond, VA.
I leave you with thoughts of music and kindness. One never goes wrong when choosing kindness as a way to react to any situation. Keep a song in your heart and especially a sense of humor.
